Biosensing and Bioelectronics

Professor in charge: Tomi Laurila

Professors: Mervi Paulasto-Kröckel, Ilkka Tittonen, Raimo Sepponen, Simo Särkkä, Ilkka Laakso

Extent:  60 credits

Abbreviation: -

Code: ELEC3045

Objectives

The target is to educate engineering experts who have versatile comprehension of biosensors and other electronic applications. To accomplish this the student is introduced to nanoscale phenomena, microfabrication techniques, biomaterials science,  biochemical recognition of biomolecules, physical transducers, sensor technologies and to good extent to clinical equipment like medical imaging. The tools needed in the development of innovations in the field of biosensors and bioelectronics are provided and the students are strongly encouraged to commercialize their own ideas.

Content and structure

This major combines  studies both in the theory and practice needed to design, develop, fabricate and characterize biosensors, biomedical devices and medical instrumentations. Hands on experience is gained to understand the biocompatibility of both organic and inorganic materials used in electronics as well as the interactions between low frequency electromagnetic fields and living tissue and in special applications these interactions even with single cells and biomolecules.
